E-series type has been the leading type of glycol ethers in the historical period of 2015-2019, but now p-series type is garnering more demand from consumers and is likely to surpass e-series as the dominant type in the coming years. In the downstream industry, paints and coating account for almost half of the global demand. The supply market is led by the Asia Pacific, accounting for nearly 40% of the global glycol ethers supply. Europe and North America follow the Asia Pacific region as the other major supply market of the product.
The Asia Pacific is the fastest-growing consumer market for the product owing to the growing end-use industries like paints and coatings and household care products, among others. The rising GDP is also supporting the growth of the regional market. The household care industry in the Asia Pacific is growing at a rapid rate owing to the growing awareness about hygiene among consumers. Increased used of paints and coatings in the region due to the ever-increasing construction and automobiles industry is providing further impetus to the glycol ethers market growth. The region imports a considerable volume of the product from North America and Europe due to a shortage of capacity corresponding to the rising demand. The Asia Pacific also significantly relies on Sadara Chemical Company in the Middle East for imports since 2018, when the latter started commercial production.
North America imports a large quantity of the p-series type. The imports primarily take place due to the demand for the product being higher than the supply capacity. It imports from Europe, which possesses a surplus volume of p-series. Other significant importers of the product are China, Taiwan, and Italy, among others. North America, especially the United States, is a major exporter of e-series owing to the excess supply capacity of this type of the chemical. It heavily exports e-series to the Asia Pacific region.
Properties and Applications
Glycol ethers are a group of solvents that are based on alkyl ethers of propylene glycol or ethylene glycol. They are used in the production of products like cleaners for floor, glass, oven, and carpet. The uses of these glycol ethers depend on their types. P-series glycol ethers are mostly used in aerosol paints, adhesives, and cleaners, among others, whereas the e-series glycol ethers are used in making cosmetic products, sunscreen, inks, and dyes, among other products. The two types of glycol ethers are:
Glycol ethers find their end-uses in the following sectors:
The EMR report also covers the regional markets like North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East, and Africa.
The glycol ethers market is significantly driven by the paints and coatings industry, which is rapidly growing due to the rising construction industry globally. The use of paints in construction and building projects is, thus, supporting market growth. The glycol ethers market is also supported by the growing automobile industry. The explicit use of paints and coatings in the automobiles industry is providing further impetus to the glycol ethers market. These industries are growing faster in developing countries like India and China, where the demand for glycol ethers is also rapidly increasing. The rising demand for water-based surface coatings is also driving the demand growth further.
The global market is also being driven by the growing demand from the Asia Pacific region. The region is the leading consumer market. The demand is due to the rising economies of the region, the ever-increasing household care market, and the increasing disposable incomes of the consumers. The region imports a large volume of glycol ethers to meet the rising demand from the domestic end-use sectors, thus, aiding the global market growth further.
Another major factor driving the glycol ethers market is the chemical intermediates market, which is expected to witness a healthy growth in the coming years. The chemical intermediates industry uses the intermediates of glycol ethers, that are, ethers and acetates.
June 2018- The Dow Chemical Company (NYSE: DOW) announced the expansion of its select performance and p-series glycol ethers product lines, including DOWANOL™ Glycol Ethers, in a series of incremental expansions and seven debottlenecking projects.
